What do I do if I'm being bullied?
PBS-In The Mix provides the following list of steps you can take to protect yourself:
Don't ignore it. Don't fight back. Becoming a bully, yourself will not make the situation better. Try to not to show anger or fear. Bullies like to see that they can upset you. Calmly tell the bully to stop, or just say nothing and walk away. If the bullying continues, keep a record of the incidents to show to a parent or teacher. Tell your parents, or any other adults you trust. Telling a trusted adult about bullying is not tattling. You are not alone, Don't isolate yourself form your friends. They can support you and help you get through it

That is pretty high compared to schools in Italy. I have not witnessed bullying here in Illinois at the school I am at yet, but attending a Catholic Jr High I think helps rather than attending a public school.
Thank you for starting this section Joshua, and if all goes well I can meet you on Friday for the weekend!!
